Shrewsbury Colleges Group has joined Stonewall to ensure young people have access to an inclusive education.
Stonewall is Europe’s largest LGBTQ+ organisation, the charity has spent more than 30 years working towards a world where all children and young people have access to an LGBTQ+ inclusive education. Shrewsbury Colleges Group has joined as a Stonewall School & College Champion
As part of the membership, the college will benefit from exclusive training and resources, guidance on best practice, as well as year-round support from a team of experts and the opportunity to be graded against the national best practice.
“It is a real pleasure to be involved with Stonewall and become one of their Champions,” says Lorraine Burrage, Project Coordinator at SCG. “It is crucial for students in the LGBTQ+ community to feel supported and included in college. Joining up with Stonewall was a natural next step in our continued efforts to support our college community.”
Lorraine and students from the SCG Pride group are also hosting several activities during Pride Month to raise money for the charity.
Karen Hayward, Agency Manager says, “Shrewsbury Colleges Group is a college with a strong sense of community where everyone is welcome. We’re always looking for new ways to ensure that students and staff have access to specialist support and resources. We strongly support the Stonewall belief that ‘when difference is celebrated, all young people are able to thrive as their unique selves’.”
